I'll just say, I'm not worried about them. Not in the least.

Or you tell me, should I book a flight and go in search of?

Something keeps nagging at me which is the idea that “People need structure in their lives” in order for an orderly society to be maintained and for the ability of the majority to continue to be able to make reasonable choices. 

Not sure if that’s everyone, or most, or just a big number, but I think it’s most people. Especially if we're talking about young people. 

We've lost that structure. That's where we're at. We're a society in flux, capable of just about anything at this point. It's why visions of Germany, 1939, or Russia, 1946 come to the minds of people who have a freakin clue. 

Back in the 50’s there were shows like Leave it to Beaver, the Mouseketeers, Ozzie and Harriet and Carol Burnett, Art Linkletter, Ed Sullivan getting seriously pissed at Jim Morrison for singing “Want to take you Higher” - Comedians that didn’t swear and didn’t need to/and were funnier. While all that strikes me as a kind of brainwashing/programming in and of itself and pretty prudish, I'll take it over gangsta rap, a pop culture full of no talent whores and drug users, and all manner of demoralization and self-mutilation. 

I just believe some number of people need some structure in their lives.  A set of tracks they can live by or when they stray there is a marker saying this is where the stuff is that has worked continually over time.  Want to break out, fine, but realize you're in virgin territory.

If they want to move on to having the skull sections of their foreheads altered so they look like Aliens, I really don't care. Stick 40 pieces of metal in their face; have their skin permanently tattooed with images of what look to be the contents of the average comic book, I don't care.  What I do think is a problem, is when massive numbers of people think watching more than 30 seconds of a show like Jersey Shore has some value. A bunch of overweight look-alike whores carousing around with a bunch of rude ignorant jock types.  If you've seen 30 seconds you've seen the entire series.  And there is nothing to see.

Too many people who grow up today watching BET at 8 years old, listening to someone yelling out M..F.. at 10AM.

I have to wonder where good values seep into people's brains especially when they don’t have any such influences on hand. Broken families, crime and drug ridden environments to grow up in. Only the truly exceptional survive with minds intact from that. Most of what is going on just symptomatic and misdirectional. As far as school scene murder: Security people. Done. Next problem. 

 Too bad the government or the new majority in America are Not Interested in doing things that make any sense.  I don't think many under 30 are capable of determining a course that makes sense.  You got libtards posting comments on blogs to the effect that The Right needs to get our of the way, when the liberal, socialist, fascist, communist democrats have had majority control since 2006. How more idiotic can it get than that?

In the meantime, the country is quickly turning into that out of control Mob you see on a number of old Twilight Zone episodes, like the one where people, somehow convinced that a UFO has landed somewhere in the neighborhood, shoot their neighbor walking back from the store in the dim light and a mob mentality state of mind. 

I personally don’t see how we can recover from this without hitting bottom first. I'm not going to bore myself with some misguided wish that the 'republicans' regain control, or that some fictional 3rd party gains control and rights the ship.  Or even more laughable, that we can somehow Educate the idiotic.   It's not going to happen.  We're in a state of a mob mentality and given the economy, we're in an extremely fragile environment.

A category 1 tropical storm happens to come ashore a little North of where they usually come ashore and it is hell on wheels for weeks.  The president flies in, walks 10 feet down a beach with the Governor of New Jersey, spouts some meaningless bullshit that has No Bearing on reality and a bunch of people decide he's the greatest thing since sliced bread.

For what it's worth..

Just Briefly, for the Millionth Time

Mass Murder happens in gun free zones.  If they weren't gun free zones, fewer mass murders would happen because essentially these people we've heard about the last 10 years are mostly cowards.  It is why they go to places where they know people are not armed.

If, after 40 years of the war on drugs, you can't keep heroin away from 13 year old kids, you aren't keeping guns away from criminals and lunatics.  Disarming the non-criminal/lunatic only makes the problem worse.

Police aren't they answer. They never show up until after the shooting is done. 

You can't protect everyone from everything.

Arm more people.  We have volunteer firemen.  Why not volunteer school protection.  There are many of us with CCW permits, and that is something I would do in retirement.  I work days. Wouldn't take much!  See some kid heading toward the school you're protecting with a weapon or tactical gear, he's not going to kill any/many people before he's dealt with.

Even if you could disarm everyone, then you got whackjobs committing mass sword mutilations at offices, schools and other sword free zones.

Come on libtards, get your head out of your ass.

The Correct Strategy Now

If you're piloting an aircraft and you are in wing stall, the correct and only maneuver that can save you is to point the nose of the plane towards the ground and throttle up so that you can build up enough airspeed to get the wings flying again. 
As an aside, this is exactly how the Air France flight 447 crashed. The French pilots were unable to operate according to training pilots get in the first days of flight school. Man what a sad pathetic incident. 

The republicans will not win an election again in the foreseeable future. 

The republicans have enhanced capability to cast Tea Party people aside.

No 3rd party will be able to win an election in the foreseeable future.

Therefore, the correct strategy for the republicans is to do Every Single Thing obama and the democrats want to do over the next 4 years starting Right Now, and make it heard throughout the land that this is what they're doing.  "The people have spoken and we will do their bidding by accepting the democrat plan for everything from soup to nuts."

Really. we will have a liberal SC. We are now screwed forever by obammycare.  What more can the democrats do to us that the republicans would have any capability to stop anyway?  Especially since they are nothing more than useless lip service lapdogs.

Then in 4 or 8 or 12 years when the country is a total shithole for everyone to see, the republicans, or a Now Viable 3rd party can run a campaign based on self-evidence that democrat policies have turned this country into a Shithole.  I think this will happen much sooner than most probably do.

I'll even go further and say that the republicans shouldn't even bother running a presidential candidate over the next 8 years at least.

The fiscal cliff will be pinned on the butt of the republican party and it will stick.  Everything else will be pinned to the republicans if they continue to pretend to resist and it will all stick.

Update: Except for Gun Control
Update:  My point about wing stall is this. (I'm glad it occurred to me as it is a perfect analogy)
When overwhelming forces are pushing your plane to the ground, continuing to try to recover without doing the hard thing, which is pointing your nose to the ground and throttling up, can only result in you crashing. No recovery. All aboard are Dead.  Just like flight 447.
